As of April 2022, all organizations applying for and receiving Michigan Arts and Culture Council funding are now required to obtain and maintain a federal Unique Entity ID (UEI). The UEI replaces the DUNS number previously used to track organizations receiving federal or state funding. The UEI is a unique 12-character identifier and is obtained by registering the organization directly on the following federal government website: This is a strict requirement; MACC cannot grant funds to organizations that have not had a valid UEI issued from the federal government.
